Thread: Anyone else a gardener?

  1. #1

    Question Anyone else a gardener?

    Does anyone else garden? I'm a memeber of seed savers exchange and a gardener. It goes nice with being a martial artist. I can grow medicinal herbs and just relax or practice out back next to the vegetables and stuff.

    My girlfriend grows things, herbs and sunflowers and what not.

    I love it, but can't be bothered to do it myself. Although I do go around watering hers sometimes, and there's ones we have had for ages which I am quite atttached to.

    Christ, if the guys on the UG/OG got hold of this, Kungfu would never recover.

    I garden. I grow food, herbs and flowers. I also tend to fruit trees, vines and plants. Just a yard full, but it's robust and varietal in it's needs.

    Love it! It is hard work, but it is also very satisfying and rewarding.

    peace
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Hard to do, living in an apartment complex

    but I'm growing Zucchini, Cayenne Peppers, Avocado, and of course, cannabis ...

    They all sit in bare rooms staring into tubs of water while standing on their heads. On their off time, they maintain exotic gardens of lush plantlife and herbs. All of this is to understand the true meaning of pudding, and to attune themselves to the "gentle" spirit.

    I have a cactus. Only have to water it like twice every couple of months. i don't even know if some of you hardcore green thumbs would even count that....
